Dr. Arezoo Zakeri


Dr Arezoo Zakeri received her BSc in Electrical Engineering from Shahid Bahonar University of Kerman, Iran. In 2009, she moved to Tehran to start MSc in Biomedical Engineering at Iran University of Science and Technology with Dr Abbas Erfanian Omidvar. She worked on HRV signals using adaptive optimal kernel time-frequency analysis in ischemic subjects. Arezoo continued her educations for PhD at Tarbiat Modares University, Tehran, in 2011. She worked with Dr Mohammad Hossein Miran Baygi on the optical characterization of biological tissues and pigmented skin lesions. In her PhD thesis, she designed and manufactured a prototype semi-automated Mueller matrix imaging system to acquire polarization image maps of tissue samples and developed models for interpretation of polarization properties in turbid media.

She has been working as a faculty member of Biomedical Engineering at Islamic Azad University since 2012. In 2019 she joined the Centre for Computational Imaging and Simulation Technologies in Biomedicine (CISTIB) at the University of Leeds as a postdoc research fellow. She developed deep generative models for probabilistic cardiac motion modelling and abnormal shape detection. In 2021, Arezoo joined RadNet to start working with Dr Zeike Taylor. Her current work is developing spatiotemporal models of breathing motion from 4D-CT data and motion-compensated image reconstruction of internal anatomy.
